Akshardham, New Delhi

#Temple in Delhi

Akshardham literally translates us to 'The divine abode of God.' This huge Hindu temple is situated on the banks of the Yamuna river, and was inaugurated on November 6 2005 by the late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. This exemplary piece of architecture is definitely visited by tourists and locals alike.

The descriptively carved temple exuberates beauty, pride and grandeur. It combines ancient traditional Indian styles with modern sense of architecture. This place is always thronging with devotees, present either inside the temple proper or besides the water pools which are adorned with fountains. A visit to this place is very spiritually enriching. People find solace in the power of prayer to their gods. No matter how many times you come here, you are always awestruck with the precision and finesse with which the temple has been sculpted.

"It is more than a temple! The statues and the artwork is amazing! The Laser Show is a must watch and there are also short movies describing the temple and Hindu religion played here, so if you're interested to know more about the background of the temple as well as the religion, you should go for those. An amazing place to go with your family. Don't miss out on this place in your next visit to Delhi! "

"Love this place as it's beauty. Marvellous hand crafted statues all around the temple will doubles the beauty. A well planned and unique styling of architecture. Feel divine if enter inside. Don't forget to visit the exhibition which will explain you the Indian tradition and pride in half an hour by a boat journey. The musical fountain with laser show is mind blowing. "

"Beautiful and incredible place. The only negative part is that they check every corner of your body a few times to make sure you dont have cameras, but its worth it"

"Awesome place, no mobile, no camera, hence just build the memory. They have amazing exhibitions, dont miss it. It will eat up at least 3-4 hours, so please don't go when you can't spend enough time. Visit a guide from outside, so that you can have self guided tour. Only bad part is, they try to convert you, which happens almost everywhere."
